"Twitter is where the conversation about the Golden Globes happens. Viewers Tweet along before, during and after the award show," said Anthony Noto, COO at Twitter. "Our collaboration with The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and dick clark productions for this red carpet show will bring high quality live content and commentary to the masses through Twitter."
"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is always searching for innovative ways and original tools to reach our audience wherever it is as Hollywood comes together on one night to celebrate the best in motion pictures and television – and Twitter is the recognized partner to help us expand our audience," said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. "With the community that Twitter has built, together we will bring the magic of the Golden Globe Awards red carpet to the homes and eyes of aspiring storytellers across the country."
"Twitter is critical to the live element of our shows by connecting audiences through real time conversation," said Mike Mahan, President, dick clark productions. "Through this partnership we will create a unique live streaming pre-show experience that takes our audience closer to the Golden Globes."
As part of the live stream, comprehensive advertising packages will be available via Twitter.
Jimmy Fallon will host the "74th Annual Golden Globe® Awards" live coast-to-coast on NBC from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 from 8-11 pm ET (5-8 pm PT).
About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Founded in the 1940s during World War II, the HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of L.A.-based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film. Seventy years later, members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world's most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $25 million to entertainment-related charities and scholarship programs.
